Newshound J.R. Deo has spent his life pursuing tragedy to the
darkest corners of the globe, reporting on places like the Killing
fields and the Middle East. He has not emerged unscathed from this
quest: he has a history of violent outbursts, and following a
savage attack on fellow journalists in a bar, Deo’s mental state
and criminal accountability for the attack are assessed at the
Institute for forensic observation in the Netherlands. Here, he
goes from observer to observed. The calm in his cell is initially
ideal for taking stock of horrors past and present. But gradually,
sinister figures take control of his pen and begin dictating their
confessions through his writing. Meanwhile, his fellow inmates at
the Institute also become increasingly restless. The violent,
paranoid men he is among begin to wonder what exactly Deo is
reporting on, and more importantly, to whom. The unsaid is the last
in the trilogy that began with De Nooy’s acclaimed novel Six fang
marks & a tetanus shot (2008), followed up by The big stick
(2011). The series can be read separately and in any order. All
three were first published in Dutch.
